Ryan Reynolds thinks it was evident “from the get-go” that he would get along with Dame Helen Mirren.

The 38-year-old actor made the confession while promoting movie Woman in Gold with Dame Helen Mirren. But while the star likes to sing around his hotel room, his co-star doesn’t seem too enamoured with his efforts.

“She's even my next-door neighbour in our hotel," he told ET Online. "And I'll occasionally hear her whack on the wall for me to keep it down [when I'm] singing some Tina Turner at the top of my lungs."

Despite this, the pair got on very well while filming the Simon Curtis movie. Ryan admits he took to the Oscar winner as soon as he clapped eyes on her.

“We have really great chemistry. We were like fire and a dry house," he smiled. "It was evident from the get-go."

It isn’t the first time the Safe House actor has been caught out singing to himself. Back in April, the father-of-one admitted to People magazine that he was overheard midway through an energetic rendition of These Dreams by Heart while out in his car.

“I was lip-synching ferociously in the car the other day,” he laughed. “And a bus load of kids were looking at me, laughing. Not the song you want to get caught rocking out to."

When Ryan isn’t busy pretending to be a singer or promoting one of his movies, he loves nothing more than spending time with his six-month-old daughter James.

“I am calmer since my daughter arrived. Fatherhood just does something to you,” he told German magazine Jolie.”You're dead tired, but on top of the world."
